Sweet Raisin Roll-Ups
These were good, but they could have been better. If I made them again, I would seriously consider doubling the amount of filling. I made these roll-ups because I wanted to quickly use up a tube of biscuits that was nearing its "best purchased by" date. It was a bit more time-consuming than I expected - taking about 20 minutes to put the roll-ups together. Bottom Line: This recipe was fun and interesting. But next time I want to quickly use up a can of biscuits, I'll just make biscuits. (This recipe was submitted in 2002. It was tested and photographed in March 2017.)
- 3/4 cup raisins
3 ounces cream cheese
2 Tablespoons honey
3 Tablespoons butter - softened
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tube canned biscuits
How To Make Sweet Raisin Roll-Ups
In a medium mixing bowl using an electric hand mixer, beat the cream cheese, honey, 2 Tablespoons of the butter and cinnamon together until well-mixed and fluffy. Stir in the raisins. Set aside.
Separate biscuit dough into 10 pieces (or 8 pieces depending on the size of your tube). On a lightly floured surface, flatten each piece into a 6-inch oval using a rolling pin.
Spread a Tablespoon of the raisin mixture over each flattened biscuit. Roll up jelly roll style. Place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet.
Melt remaining Tablespoon of butter and brush each roll-up.
Bake at 375 degrees for 12 to 14 minutes. Once cooled, chop the ends off of each roll-up to expose the raisin swirl inside.
Nobody will believe you started with a tube of biscuits from the grocery store. These roll-ups taste like you got them from the bakery.
